Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 28, 1983):
John Neville, as the revenue inspector who collected the Whiskey Tax, played a part in the events that led to the Whiskey Rebellion (1794). This 1-1/2-story frame house (1785) is the surviving property most closely associated with him; the home in which he lived at the time of the Rebellion was burned by the rebels.

Wood siding has been repaired. Shutters have been repaired or replaced with those of identical style and appearance. Windows have been reglazed and painted. The entire exterior of the house has been cleaned and painted including the veranda porch and lattice. Paint samples were analyzed and it was concluded that white was the original color. A Benjamin Moore historic white has been used. Old asphalt shingles were removed and the entire roof replaced using cedar shingles, copper ½ round gutters, and downspouts. Also in 2004, extensive repairs have been made to the Spring House including a matching cedar roof and the same copper gutters and downspouts as the main house. Seven 6 over 6 windows were replaced with historic wood windows with true pane divides.
